Dua Lipa fans – the francophone ones, at least – have apparently been clamouring for her to record a version of ‘IDGAF’ in French. Well, even if they haven’t, she’s done it.

“Your wish is my command BBs”, she wrote on Twitter. She then switched to French, which I have helpfully (unless you’re a French-speaker) translated for you: “To all my French fans, I just recorded a version of ‘IDGAF’ on which I sing in French aahhh! There is also a version with Master Gims, my favourite rapper. I hope to be able to play it very soon!”

Regardless of what languages you do or don’t speak, I’m sure you’re now very keen to know how “I don’t give a fuck” translates into French. Well get ready to be disappointed, because she only sings the verses in French on this new version. So your international swearing dictionary will not be receiving an update today.

While we’re on the subject of Dua Lipa, word has it that she might be recording the next Bond theme. Appearing on BBC Radio 5 Live yesterday, Years & Years’ Mikey Goldsworthy said he thought they might be a shoo-in for it, as they’ve recently worked with Judy Dench and Ben Whishaw, both of whom have appeared in James Bond movies.

“I thought they’d ask us to do the theme tune”, he said. “But I think Dua Lipa is doing it”.

That’s not exactly confirmation, but I guess it’s as good a place as any to start speculation. People like to speculate about who’s doing the next Bond theme, don’t they? Je m’en fous.
